Plataforma per la llengua presents the Report on Language Immersion in Catalonia, an explanatory and comparative study of a successful model in the use of the Catalan language as a tool for social cohesion. The report provides empirical and objective data on the importance and need to continue applying this model in the educative system of Catalonia.
In this document Plataforma per la Llengua explains the main features and characteristics of the language immersion model in Catalonia. It offers a comparison of the Catalan educative system and the educational model of other countries that use the same methodology.
This booklet wants to show how this system guarantees bilingual Catalan-speaking students after completing compulsory education, since the social environment of Catalonia is very favorable to Spanish and language immersion guarantees and makes it possible for people who do not have Catalan as their first language to learn this language with a native level of fluency.
Hence, we can state that the Catalan educative system is a successful model that is supported by the Catalan institutions and the European Union.
